If you're looking for lightweight warmth and year-round comfort, then be sure to get your hands on a pair of the Men's Altitude Base Layer 7/8th Merino Thermal Tights. Made with one of our lightest high-performance Merino fabrics, these tights will help you stay warm and comfortable through a range of activities and temperatures; they keep you warm when it's cold and cool when it's warm for year round comfort.

Designed with alpine sports in mind, the Altitude 7/8th length perfectly complements your ski, snowboarding and hiking boots. What's more, there's no need for tucking into your boot cuff creating uncomfortable bulk or chafe so you can stay comfortable out on the slopes and trails at all times. And if you're just someone who prefers 7/8 tights over full length, then these are for you too!

Tag-free labels, flatlock stitching and a flexible and ultra-soft ioMerino elasticated waistband help eliminate chafe and maximize comfort. The mid-rise style works perfectly with the Altitude Base Layer tops to ensure no exposed cold spots when you're on the go.

Designed to be worn as a body tight ‘contact fit’ layer.

Perfect for snow sports and hiking. 

Made with 170gsm lightweight 96% superfine Australian Merino and 4% Elastane MicroMerino® - for an easy four-way stretch and freedom of movement.

Ultra Trail Australia mandatory gear approved thermals.


Fabric Guide

While Merino is an amazing natural fibre, not all Merino fabrics are created equal. At ioMerino, we make our own fabrics, using only the best quality fibres, and to very specific specifications that make the most of the natural benefits of Merino. All of them are 'Merino rich’. No cheap blends passed off as Merino. No cheaper scratchy fibres or synthetic substitutes to save money. No unethical production. And each fabric is made for a specific purpose. So if you see something with a small amount of elastase or nylon added, you can be sure it absolutely needs to be there to enhance the natural stretch and durability. 

It took every bit of our 140 years of experience in the wool industry to perfect our fabrics, but we think you’ll agree the end result was more than worth the effort.

Ethically Made. Ethically Sourced. Perfectly Natural.
